I used a medium sized cookie scoop and didn't expect them to expand as much as they did. They are jumbo sized whoopie pies but I actually kind of like them that way. Plus, I ended up with 10 of them which is more than enough, instead of numerous smaller pies.

Crossing Whoopie Pies Off My List
Yep.....I never made whoopie pies until tonight. Although I bake quite a bit there are many things I have yet to make. There seems to be a whoopie pie craze lately so I thought it was time I give it a try. This is the recipe I used for the chocolate cookie portion: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Whoopie-Pies-VII/Detail.aspx
I used two different types of fillings. I had some leftover cream from making "Hostess" cupcakes so I filled some of them with that and I also whipped up some sort of salted buttercream type filling as I was began to throw ingredients together!
...once cooled use a piping bag with pipe your cream onto the cookie. Make sure to put an extra ring on cream on the outer edge of the cookie.
